Dr. Ricardo Alvarez Orozco is the head dentist at Dental Alvarez; he’s also a father, a husband and an active yoga student. He graduated from UABC with Honors, started practicing when Dental Alvarez was born in a small office near The Caliente Race Track in Tijuana, and after a few years Dr. Ricardo moved his practice to a new building (current offices) in Zona Río, Tijuana. Since then Dr. Ricardo has been practicing, creating and teaching different models of Esthetic Dentistry.


As most Dentists in Tijuana, Dr. Ricardo Alvarez Orozco has been constantly updating his skills in Cosmetic Dentistry, Prosthodontics, Occlusion, Implantology and Rehabilitation. You can probably find him learning at The LMT LAB DAY West or Chicago, The American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry (AAED) Annual Meeting in Santa Barbara or The American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) congress in San Francisco, CA; and at the Dental Alvarez facility he’s continues to give dental seminars and courses for other future dentists and current specialist.

One constant thing he will do is innovate, finding better ways of doing what hes always been doing; from installing an elevator in a 3 story building, or recently in 2013 finally with his own dental lab, he started offering a service called “One Visit Dentistry” wich you can get a permanent crown or implant in a single visit, this way patients are not forced to do multiple visits or leave with temp-crowns; this year (August 14 to the 17, 2014) he will be hosting “The Dental Implant Team Seminar” a long with Dr. Dennis Smiler at the Dental Alvarez facility, were 8 dentist will have the opportunity to learn and practice the art of Dental Implants.
